I work with adults and couples who want to better understand themselves as they work through challenges. I gather information and help generate ideas that support autonomy and healthy relationships. I support clients as they find strength in a challenging world, adjust to life transitions, and manage difficulties such as families, illness, grief, depression, and anxiety. Using EMDR therapy I can assist clients in processing and healing from personal trauma(s). I see therapy as an active and collaborative process. I am here to listen and to help you navigate a desired change.

Ah, this life! In the lyrics of an old song, ‘Nobody said it was easy, no-one ever said it would be so hard’. I’ve spent most of my life dedicated to human connection- to self and other— bringing deep curiosity to how we can belong deeply to ourselves, and still be loved and belong deeply to one another. It’s not easy. Yet, it truly is possible. And, we need courage and guides along the way. That is where I can help. Our time together is a place where you can unfold yourself. Where you can learn to trust again. I am skilled at working in the deeper realms of grief, depression, anxiety, trauma, and above all intimacy and sexuality.

I offer individual and group grief counseling to grievers. As a suicide-bereaved mother myself, I offer traumatic grief counseling to parents and other grievers. Because child loss can be so isolating, bereaved parents often find companionship in a group to be a comfort on this difficult lifelong path. While religious/spiritual notions can be a support, often they are not. As people of conscience, we can lean into what comforts and release what is no longer helpful; sometimes clients grapple with their changing beliefs in sessions. Traumatic grief often leads to changes in beliefs and I companion that exploration. I am a humanist.

How many of us wake up one day to discover we are living a life that does not quite fit who we are or what we want? We are stuck, anxious, and depressed, often without knowing why or what to do about it. Or maybe we do know why but aren't sure what our first steps should be to get ourselves moving again. What we do know, though, is that there is something more inside of us, that we have a "guiding star" that is just waiting to be discovered.

As helpful as traditional talk therapy can be, your mind is in every cell of your body, so creating shifts in your mind or body requires working with both. I work with mind and body at the same time: with bodywork (CranioSacral Therapy techniques) I can sense and help you release physical and energetic restrictions so your body can function more optimally, and with therapeutic dialoguing (Hypnotherapy techinques) I can help discover and transform internal conflict to help you feel at ease within yourself. My goal is to help you feel better from the very first session.

*Accepting new clients*- It can be lonely and overwhelming to find ourselves in emotional struggle. The therapeutic relationship is unique and one that I deeply trust. It's instrumental to have a companion and guide as we traverse these unchartered inner landscapes. The pain we feel invites us on a transformative journey from obscurity to clarity. It's so tempting to contract when we are challenged, but it's critical to soften and trust into the process. This movement through our pain rearranges us into an expanded version of ourselves. I bring the qualities of warmth, openness, and curiosity to this transformative work together.

Are you sick and tired of feeling bad? Call me! For over 20 years, Internal Family Systems has been my primary modality. I had the very good fortune of being able to train with its founder: Dr Richard Schwartz. My clients and I continue to be amazed at how effective IFS is for healing old trauma and staying clear, calm, centered and curious in the face of new experiences that life brings. Or at least knowing how to get back to that state quickly. How great is that? And, like every psychotherapist I know, I also have a toolbox of things that can help you along the way.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
